Steak
We believe that to produce the best food, you should work with all your suppliers on a close and personal basis. We acquired our own butchers, Jefferies in Kingston, so that we could control our meat all the way from the abattoir to the table. This helps ensure that our steaks and handmade burgers are of the highest quality.



In 1999, the boys decided that they wanted to bring a high-street, high-quality steak concept to London, Black & Blue and the first modern American steakhouse in the capital, was born.

Friendly service. Prompt but not intrusive. Short menu which is good. What they do they do well. Noisy when we went due to builders over the road but that is not their fault and is temporary

My best restaurant experience in London for years! Very friendly and welcoming service, and the food (we had the steak) was perfect for all four of us, as were the cocktails and beers! The outdoor seating, sheltered and with plentiful heaters were the cherry on top, I felt comfortable but never cold - like we were inside! Will come again!

My husband is a foodie and mentioned that the steak was really good and cooked perfectly.

For myself the service was wonderful, really friendly, but not forced, really professional and I would go back for that alone.

Lovely place. Tables close to one another so it wasn’t particularly private but I would like to return with inside dining.

everything about our visit on Friday night was average, nothing outstanding. 2x prawn starters, could have been from anywhere/any restaurant and no effort to make intersting or present well. 2 xcheeseburgers and fries - desperately ordinary, 1xsalmon fillet and fires with a salad. 2 beers and 2 diet cokes came to over £140. There are better, more intersting choices in Borough market.

Been here before and had a great meal and food was excellent t. On this occasions, food wasn't as good (Burger Buns soggy, Burger meat bland and steak had minimal flavours).
I will try again as the first time I ever went here food was exceptional , I'm hoping this occasion was just down to Covid 19 and being a late booking (lockdown eve)
Would I go back and recommend- yes.

Went for lunch with work colleagues and it was lovely. The cocktails were great and everyone enjoyed their meal. Only niggle was that someone asked for their steak blue and it was over cooked.
